Should i use mine old ATI HD3850 GPU or Intel HD4600

Hi, so i have this situation with my new i3 4330 machine, i use old ATI card with it and its perfectly fine for games that i play but i feel that this card makes my system heat more then it should. Anyways, should i use that old card or integrated one? Which one is more powerful? And why does my windows experience index give 7.2 score to GPU, considering its too old. Thanks guys.

    3850 is faster, but based on older technology and does not support DirectX 11. That being said, neither of them is actually a good fit for your system. I would replace this 3850 with Nvidia 750Ti, which is several times faster than 3850, while consuming 2x less power in the process.

    EDIT: As for the Windows Experience Index, forget about it. This benchmark is far from being relevant for anything. If you want real benchmarks, try Unigine Haven / Valley, or 3DMark.

    Thanks for reply friend. Yeah, i guess i should get new gpu. As now i am very short on money ( in my country prices for PC equipment are too high ) i am thinking of getting used HD7770 or HD7750 maybe but will check out prices for 750Ti, i am nvidia fan anyways :))

    Thanks again.
  3. What about old GTX460 or something similar please, could i play Splinter Cell Blacklist with that card, maxed out?

    I3 4330, 4GB 1600mHz ddr3 is what i have.
